Oregon as a Fruit Land.
Experience lias prayed that great
and lasting benefits are the results
of a community of intelligent per
sons being massed together In a
limited area, for horticultural pur
suits on land In the best locations,
with soil and all surroundings best
adapted for that special purpose.
l)ho fruit lands of (Jregon are
located on the choicest hill land
wlth'basaltlc soil, being far superior
to, and much more lasting than
California's best fruit lauds, located
as they are on a granite foundation.
The building of cold storago in
the cities where tho fruit will be
sold and the storing of fruit in them
each fall, to be sold In the winter
an'd spring months, can be accom
plished by tho co-operation of many,
while It would bo impracticable for
an Isolated fruit tjrower.
Contracting to supply largo
amounts of fruit to canneries can
be accomplished to much advantage.
Dryjug fruifs, if deemed necessary,
can bo accomplished mini extensive
way wlth'mqcli less Ja'bor, ahd con

vidual cllbrt, and a largo lot can be
placed on tho market at a price in
advanco of that of a small lot.
The buyingof choice land in small
tracts, at. a reasonable price Is dllll
cult, especially to tho stranger,, who
not unfrequently buys land alto

THE FARMERS' CUXGKESS.
Eloquent Facts for Farmers to Read
The address to the people of Ore
gon by tho executive committee of
the Farmers, Congress -is strong,
straightforward and manly, and
shows from figures obtained from
the commissioner of agriculture,
that while the Increase of farm
values from 1800 to 1880 was 2J per
cent., that of other values was 20J
per cent. Aud while tho agricultur
al Industry represents 41 per cent,
of those engaged in "gainful occu
pations," the agricultural class holds
only 22J per cent, of the wealth of
the nation. And although the
amount of wealth produced by the
agriculturists lias quadrupled dur
ing the last two decades, their pro
portion of tho results of our general
Industry has shrunk from 50 per
cent to 27J per cent., while that of
thoso eDgaged largely in modifying
and transporting what has been pro
duced by the farmer has Increased
during the time from about 30 per
cent, to nearly 75 per cent, The
causes of this alarming transfer of
wealth from the pockets of those
who actually produce the commodi
ties representing wealth tp the
pockets of thoso who for tho most
part only modify them, aud tli

Yesterday there was a conference
between a number of Salem's busi

thought best to delay action a few
days longer at least until tho holi

not sooner, a eommltteo appointed
by the board of Undo will visit As

is consideiable strife between tho O.
R. & N. and the O. P. river boats
for business. Tho river is now at a
good boating stage, and steamers can
go as far up as Harrisburg without
difficulty. The O. R. & N. Com
pany's steamboat Chamnion has
been placed on tho upper Willamette
trade but has no regular schedule
time, and will ply on the upper
river, picking up business wherever
It can be found, Tho O. P. boats
are handicapped, owing to the fact
that the rail division is almost block
ed with freight awaiting shipment
hy the O. D. steamers, and in conse
quenco thousands of bushels of
wheat that would bo shipped by tho
O. P. route must find an outlet via
Portland aud the O. R. & N. boats.
